    Catalina* neutrally-buoyant AL80 tanks, left- and right-handed valves, and modular so that you can change them from yoke to DIN with an Allen wrench.

    I bought these back in 2014 for solo sidemount diving. Only used a dozen times a year, at most. I have medical issues that preclude any advanced diving, so I'm clearing out my garage/closet.

    Last viz was May 2018, and since they're five years old, they're due for a hydro. Obviously they could probably use some new o-rings too.

    Asking $200 for the pair. I don't even want to think about shipping these beasts, so pickup from central Chicago only (Lakeview -- about a block from Underwater Safaris actually).

    *I'm pretty sure they're Catalinas, anyway. I have this stuck in my head, but I can't find the original invoice.

    I dive exclusively with neutral buoyancy Al 80s... my favorite tanks. This is an excellent deal.

    Sorry to get of topic, but how are these for diving sidemount? I'm assuming drysuit in Lake Michigan.

    They're OK, that's exactly what I used them for. In retrospect, plan old positive-buoyancy AL80s might have been better for me, because that's what I'm used to. But these let you distribute your weight a bit more, of course, which is why I got them in the first place.
